Default Audio in the Tesla "S"

Reviewers were able to get hold of a crashed Tesla S -- the audio inside was supplied by S1nn of Germany:

S1nn GmbH & Co. KG ? Infotainment, Connectivity, Audio

Looks like Tesla is the only US auto company they supply.

Seems the only other car S1nn have done is the Porsche 918.

Not bad company to keep though...

S1nn has a lot of cooperation contracts with other companies.
See for example their development of the Aurophonie/Auro-3D set for the Audi Q5.
S1nn is also the main developer of handsfree cell phone stuff for Volkswagen.

Not half bad for a company that was set up a decade ago.

(part of the audio inside the S is manufactured by Tesla itself, btw)

If I ever won the lottery, I would get a Tesla... What a great "toy" that would be!

There's about a dozen of the S in my area, very smart looking car.

The use of a company car is considered income here. Driving a Tesla saves $10k to $15k on income tax a year.
There's no luxury tax added to the retail of a fully electic car, so the actual savings are even larger.
Pretty attractive for a commuting company owner/ceo, who'll have something with more testosteron for his few privately used miles.
In these parts, his (much younger and thinner) wife commonly drives a supercharged Range Rover Sport.
(to pick up the kids on the return trip from the stables, and do the shopping, while still wearing riding breeches/boots and spreading around manure)

yeah, there's a few around here as well, to me they look almost as sexy on the road as the new Jags,and there's certainly a lot to be admired about the company's success and marketing

Tesla Motors | Premium Electric Vehicles

However, before we tear our rotator cuffs patting our collective backs over the design and growth potential of the "new" electric cars - Tesla and others - we need to consider the carbon footprint / environmental impact of the entire production stream - including for example the new battery giga-factory, and construction of charging infrastructure. That electricity has to come from somewhere, and unless Elon is channeling Nikola and has discovered a way to pull it out of thin air and distribute it similarly, there'll be unforeseen costs and consequences.
